Details of package
The Stud Fee will be £200 - Nominations will only be taken for 5 mares during 2013
Each Stud Fee will provide you with
3 Doses. 1 Dose is sufficient for each insemmination. You will be provided with 3 doses and any unused doses must be returned i.e. if your mare takes on the first go - then two will be sent back etc - I will pay for the return of unused doses. The semen is of good quality and stored at Tremlows. You may only use the doses on the nominated mare, if you wish to substitute to another mare this must be agreed by myself, or if you want to use any unused semen on another mare then a further £200 Stud Fee must be paid.
The Stud Fee is non returnable as the cost of taking frozen semen does not come cheap!! but you do have 3 attempts.
If you are new to this please make sure you are fully aware of the costs involved. From experience those who use a reputable AI centre like Tremlows have far more success than a non specialist Equine Vet. Those centres will also be able to give you a sensible realistic package and have the facilities for storing the frozen semen. I would also have your mare scanned prior to making any decisions just to make sure all is as it should be.
The only other cost is that of transporting the frozen semen to your AI centre that is £100 payable by yourself
There are many pro's to AI and t he only negative in my mind is still cost but for the difficult or much loved pony it is a sensible option - here are some of his progency
